it was ok

Not that it wasn't a well researched and thorough book, and not that he didn't make a good argument for the centrality of The Black Death as a turning point in Mediterranean history...still the best thing about it was the cover. Interminable statistics, prosaic writing, and some repetitiveness made it a pleasure to finish. If one were a medievalist working on The Black Death, one would want to read this book. No one else should bother.
